You are likely dealing with an abnormal scar;  hypertrophic or keloid scarring. Your plastic surgeon will likely address it with agent such as injectable steroids. Best wishes.

Hypertrophic Scar

It looks like a hypertrophic scar.  You should go see your plastic surgeon so they can see it in person and treat it appropriately.

Bump in scar after tummy tuck

I think that is a small area of hypertrophic scarring.  I would go in and get him to asses it.  I would likely inject it with a small amount of steroids.
